Wish I lived in the UK for this silvervision stuff.

Watched WM XXIV with a couple friends the other night. Still my favorite WM.

Finlay vs JBL - Belfast Brawl - ***1/4


This match gets better and better every time I watch it and it's honestly one of the most action packed JBL matches I've ever seen. Finlay is a badass too. And that suicide dive into the trash can lid is insane. Really, really enjoy this match.

Money In The Bank IV - ****1/4


This still holds up as my favorite MITB even though I have the original rated higher. Tons of creativity in this one with my favorite spots being the sunset flip powerbomb/suplex off the ladder from Benjamin and the ladder contraption in the corner that Morrison climbs up and almost grabs the case. I still can't believe that Benjamin spot powerbomb spot though, it's breathtaking. Not to mention you have a diving backstabber that almost hits Jericho in the back of the skull, Benjamin going through a ladder and doing other insane shit, Morrison's ridiculous moonsault with the ladder and Punk winning. LOVE this match.

Umaga vs Batista - Battle Of Brand Supremacy - **


My one big disappointment on this show. Could have been so much better if it had been booked a bit differently but these two never really picked it up. Sort of a slow pace for it and the finish just sort of happens. Meh, think in a hardcore environment they could've had a great match but this was more for filler.

Kane vs Chavo Guerrero - ECW Championship - *


Giving it a star because it was funny, out of nowhere and the match wouldn't have been that good had it happened. So bravo for WWE making an actual questionable match go under a minute at WM.

Shawn Michaels vs Ric Flair - Ric Flair's Final Masterpiece - ****3/4


This still holds up for me. I've watched it at least ten times and it gets me every time. Just the video package before the match hypes me up for it. Both of them put on a hell of a show here and HBK's missed moonsault through the table is chilling. Looked like he was gonna puke everywhere. The final moments are what made it though. The "I'm sorry, I love you" was epic and even know not many expected Flair to win, it didn't hurt the match one bit.

Maria & Ashley vs Melina & Beth Phoenix w/Santino Marella & Snoop Dogg as guest host - *


Wasn't the worst thing I've ever seen. Santino was hilarious in this and the backstage segment. Plus Katie Lea was there. I'M MARKING OUT BRO.

Randy Orton vs John Cena vs Triple H - WWE Championship - ***1/2


Really good match in a wrestling sense but I've heard people say, and I completely agree, that something was missing. Not even sure what it was, but it didn't seem complete. I think this might have been the first time Orton did the double roped DDT. I remember when that move actually finished matches. Still a really solid match though and the ending with the punt was well done.

Big Show vs Floyd Mayweather - ***1/4

This match entertains the fuck out of me. Starts off kinda slow but once Mayweather's entourage gets involved it becomes awesome. Absolute havoc once Show starts destroying people and Mayweather takes a pretty mean beating. Ending with the brass knucks (regal plz) was pretty cool too. The chokeslam that the poor fuck in his entourage is brutal.

Edge vs The Undertaker - World Heavyweight Championship - ****1/2


This match grows on me every time I watch it. I think I rated it ***1/2 when it originally happened but it keeps going up for me. Taker really takes a beating in this that I didn't quite remember. You get a few too many finishers during the ending sequences but it's the main event of WM so if there's any place for that, it's here. Edge actually looked really badass in this match made a damn good effort of taking out Undertaker. Plus you gotta love the Charles Robinson epic run to the ring. Had the stage been on SD, you'd have to believe it would've ended.

Overall this is still my favorite Wrestlemania and my favorite WWE PPV of all time. Got 3 matches that went over four stars, 3 in the three star range and even the matches under that can hold your attention. Only real disappointment is Umaga/Batista.

Overall: 9.5/10

I had Floyd Mayweather vs Big Show as my match of the year that year. Just simple and awesome pro wrestling. I loved that match.

I just reviewed the Austin vs Kane vs Taker match from 1998 and the Kane vs Taker match with Austin as the special ref on my blog. You can check it out in my sig.

They should definitely bring back MITB at Mania.

~Gets the midcarders involved in the biggest PPV of the year
~Can give a guy credibility for a year
~Always great, innovative entertainment
~Breaks up the mid card matches perfectly over pointless single matches which end up going nowhere
~Gets the crowd going
~Some argue it was destroying the mid card scene, when in actual fact Mania (27 & 28) have been worse off without it.

WM needs MITB. It makes those shows so much better and gives everyone a spot on the card, which eliminates the stupid tag they have.

If WWE do strike a deal with another distributor then I'm wondering what's going to happen to the Tagged Classics series? I don't know if it would be possible but I've always wanted SV to do one of those fortnightly magazine/dvd combos with their old PPVs. The ones you can buy in the newsagents where the first issue is cheap like 2.99 then every issue after that is something like 8.99. Manga UK have done it in recent years with their old titles and was a success as it ended after 100 editions which was twice as long as originally intended. I know that actually works out more expensive than the 14.99 double-packs on the SV site, but it would be a wonderful thing to collect.

In the unlikely event that it ever happened though, I would like it to be Silvervision doing it.
If SV go the Tagged Classics will go with them. From what I understand they are only allowed to re-release stuff they previously released which a new company would not be able to do.

Anyway strangly for someone who has as many DVDs as me and who lives in the UK I'd ordered less than 10 DVDs (not including all the BD exclusive PPV they've released) from SV in the 6 years I've been collecting. I've always kinda wanted to get the Tagged Classics but felt they were overpriced but at 5.99 a pop I couldn't resist and in the last week have bought the following

King Of The Ring 1993 & 1994

I saw their Tagged Classics sale last week and I couldn't bear to check again until today because I don't have the money right now. Most of the stuff you bought was the same DVDs I was wanting as well. At 3 a disc you will be glad you did buy them when the value of these things inevitably rise through the years.

This is going to be a nightmare now trying to collect these and I wanted all the PPVs of the '80s and '90s as well

Get weird obsession over steelbooks when it comes to DVDs/BluRays. Anyone know of all the steelbook edition WWE DVD'S that were released in the UK?
